Plus new pictures! =========================================================== Ok y’all.... Continue Reading →

Elotes Italianos

Got excited to make some elotes tonight, as part of our Fourth of July weekend grilling, but turns out we didn't have the cotija in the fridge like we thought. Our improvisation led to making this corn in the style of Mexican street corn, but with the flavors of Italy. Turned out just good enough... Continue Reading →

Honey Roasted Carrots with Feta & Pistachio

Over the past few months, I've been seeing some amazing-looking roasted carrot recipes on Instagram, with some similar attributes. These by Noor Murad from a January Ottolenghi column, with mozzarella, maple, and hazelnuts. There was another with labneh and another with garlic yogurt. The combination of roasted carrots plus some sort of dairy, topped with... Continue Reading →

Pork & Rice Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls can be found in traditional cuisines all across Europe and the Middle East, though in my head, I most associate them with eastern Europe. In keeping with our Ukrainian dinner theme, we made these cabbage rolls in more of a Ukrainian style. As with every "traditional dish" I've ever researched or made, there... Continue Reading →

Ukrainian New Potatoes

Over the past few weeks, I, along with much of the rest of the world, have watched in horror as the Russian invasion of Ukraine has played out on the TV and internet right before my eyes. It's hard to know that you can't do much of anything other than bear witness and donate to... Continue Reading →

Mini Clementine Cakes

I was working on a Lunar New Year menu and browsing Woks of Life (an excellent Chinese cooking blog if you're interested!) when I came across these. Given that I already had the ingredients and that a citrus dessert sounded like a perfect winter treat, I decided to add these in with our more traditional... Continue Reading →

White Bean & Tiny Pasta Soup

This is the easiest soup and one of my favorite family recipe soups. In our family cookbook, it's attributed to by Aunt Townley. It's the one my mom makes for me if I'm not feeling well (or that I steal out of her fridge any time I see it). It's another one of those things... Continue Reading →

So Long 2021!

Here we are with our end of the year blog roundup/look back tradition. 2021 was another weird year... Pandemic things were better, kind of, maybe?? A lot one step forwards, two steps back... We were privileged enough to be vaccinated in late December of 2020, along with many other American frontline healthcare workers, but anxiously... Continue Reading →

Miso e Cacio e Pepe

Circling back to September's Cookbook Club selection for this one. I knew I wanted to make this as soon as we opened the book, but just hadn't gotten to it yet. I'm glad we finally did! This was easy to bring together and used ingredients that we already had on hand. (Although we may keep... Continue Reading →

THE Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today is the day folks! We're finally blogging Selim's chocolate chip cookies, as we've been threatening since the beginning of this blog. Selim has been perfecting his chocolate cookies for years, and he finally has it down. There's a reason for everything. Obviously, perfect is in the eyes of the beholder, but he's tweaked it...
